This book contains advice on writing applications that take advantage of popular MS-DOS extenders (software which ups the amount of memory DOS can drawn on).

It is a part of The Andrew Schulman Programming Series.

From the back of the book:

'Section one is an introduction to the world of DOS extenders, including discussion of what an extender is, why you'd use one, and which ones are available.

Section two contains many programming examples and focuses on the technical aspects of DOS extenders, including protected-mode pointers, interrupt handling, DPMI calls, and virtual memory.

Section three analyzes fully-functional extender programs including a disk duplication program, a graphics program, and a server than enables DOS and Windows programs to communicate with each other.'
